The photos are found on the web while pursuing an amateur photographer from North Dakota who obsessively documents the decaying process of these houses.

      For her series Broken Houses, artist Ofra Lapid sought inspiration from an amateur photographer who has documented decaying and abandoned buildings across North Dakota. The series includes crumbling miniature houses and neglected barns, some merely dilapidated, others completely collapsed.

      Ofra Lapid ~ "Broken Houses" series based on photographs of abandoned structures neglected by man and destroyed by the weather. The photographs are found on the internet and used to create small scale models. Afterward the models are photographed again, omitted from their background and placed in gray.

      Artist, Ofra Lapid has taken 2D images of decaying buildings (my favorite kind) that she found, built them into 3D scale models, and then transformed them back into photographs.

      These amaz­ing mod­els by Tel Aviv artist Ofra Lapid are based on pho­tographs of aban­doned struc­tures neglected by man and destroyed by weather. The pho­tographs were found on the Inter­net and then used to cre­ate the scale models.

      Israeli artist Ofra Lapid’s Broken Houses series consists of incredibly detailed scale models based on photographs of abandoned barns, houses, and apartment buildings.

      Artist, Ofra Lapid has taken 2D images of decaying buildings (my favorite kind) that she found, built them into 3D scale models, and then transformed them back into photographs. Somehow, the description of the process doesn't do the work justice, though. I think these are quite stunning.

      Inspired by photos of decaying houses which Israeli artist Ofra Lapid found on the Internet, Lapid created a series of incredible detailed small scale models of these abandoned homes. I’m not entirely sure, but it seems like Lapid printed the pictures on paper/cardboard before shaping them into houses. The series Broken houses is based on photographs of abandoned North Dakotan structures neglected by man and destroyed by the weather.

      Ofra Lapid. How great would this be for a ww2 type dollhouse, having half the house bombed?
